Angels Acquire Greg Billo From Royals

Here are today’s minor moves from around the league…

  • The Angels have acquired minor league right-hander Greg Billo from the Royals in exchange for cash considerations, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports (via Twitter). The 23-year-old Billo posted a sparkling 1.35 ERA with a 38-to-13 K/BB ratio in 40 innings at Class A Lexington last season but has a bloated 7.41 ERA with 17 strikeouts and 13 walks in 17 innings at Double-A this season. Kansas City selected Billo in the 28th round of the 2008 draft. Prior to the 2012 campaign, Baseball America praised Billo for having the best command of any pitcher in the Royals’ system, but that appears to have eluded him — at least for the time being.
